Everyone knows that dogs are man’s best friend, but not everyone knows what people with emotional or physical disabilities know: that dogs may very well save your life. “Rescue Dog to Super Dog,” which premieres Aug. 10 on Animal Planet, shows how people with disabilities often see dramatic changes in their lives when shelter dogs become their companions. It’s a show that everyone — dog owner or not — will relate to, says Los Angeles-based trainer Laura London.
Does anyone doubt that the return of “Will & Grace” after an 11-year hiatus will be a success? NBC surely doesn’t. The network’s chairman of entertainment, Bob Greenblatt, announced on Thursday that its revival of the turn-of-the-millennium megahit show has been renewed for a second season and will have its first season extended from 12 episodes to 16. That’s impressive, considering that the revival hasn’t even aired yet. The first episode will premiere on Sept. 28.
Executive Producer Dick Wolf is making a splash with his new NBC miniseries, “Law & Order True Crime: The Menendez Murders.”“We’ve made some great shows ripped from the headlines. This is on a different level,” Wolf said at the Television Critics Association summer press tour in Los Angeles on Thursday. He said the eight-episode series aims to make viewers take a close look at the jail sentences Lyle and Erik Menendez got for the murder of their parents in 1989.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used.) For example, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
